Pregnant, pregnancy induced hypertension, thrombophilic disorders, proluton depot injection, pressure reading 128/82 and 135/80. Normal?

I had an intrauterine fetal death at 28 weeks pregnancy 2 years back (the fetus , however, showed development of only 20 weeks). My doctor suspected PIH and possible thrombophilic disorder as there were numerous placental clots. I am 20 weeks pregnant now, and have been advised weekly proluton depot shots as well as daily clexane injections. My pressure reading was 128/82 yesterday & 135/80 today. Is this normal?

Thanks for writing to us.
Your blood pressure readings are excellent and ar enot worrisome. Since you had an intrauterine death earlier, this time you will have to be more cautious. You need to continue with progesterone shot and clexane injections as advised by your gynecologist.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
